ULU – what is it?    

At the moment (and until August 2014) it’s a federal Students Union. All students registered at a college of the University or one of the SAS institutes are automatically members.

The ULU Building in Malet Street provides for social, cultural, recreational student activities. It is an important centre for live music, student societies, sports clubs, the student newspaper, shops, cafes and bars.   It is a small but very successful live music venue and many famous bands have played there.

ULU also operates a private health club known as Energy base which is open to students and members of the public. Facilities include a 60-station gymnasium with cardio theatre, a 33-metre swimming pool and two studios. Up to 50 fitness classes are offered per week. 

ULU runs the intercollegiate London sports leagues. In addition to the ULU-based sports, the University owns a boathouse in Chiswick which is open to college and intercollegiate teams  and hosts some of the most successful rowing teams in the UK.

The largest student-newspaper in Europe, London Student, is written and produced at ULU, entirely by students.

Many of the Colleges and Institutes of the University also have their own students’ unions and societies. You should contact your College or Institute for more details.
